UK Election 2015: Blair attacking Cameron over EU referendum plan

Mr Blair said Mr Cameron had put “exit on the agenda” by pledging a vote and that leaving would threaten the UK’s position as a “great global nation“. (BBC)

Tony Blair continued:

And the oddest thing of all about having this referendum? The Prime Minister doesn’t really believe we should leave Europe; not even the Europe as it is today. This was a concession to Party, a manoeuvre to access some of the UKIP vote, a sop to the rampant anti-Europe feeling of parts of the media. (Guardian)

Nigel Farage has responded to Tony Blair’s comments about the dangers of a referendum on leaving the EU, accusing Blair of backing ‘corporatist EU agenda’. (Guardian)
